Flags of Pride

Yesterday I was privileged to be apart of  a flag raising ceremony and rally  at the LGBT Community Center in Manhattan in response to a rainbow flag burning hate crime that happened there last week.

The Center has been a beacon of safety and hope for LGBT New Yorkers for almost 30 years. The building stands as an emblem of the LGBT community’s presence in the city and is visited over 300,000 times every year by people in search of support, transformation, and safety.

I will be exhibiting two photo essays at The Center in the next couple of months- Walking the Block – Christopher Street after dark will be going up in June during Gay pride month.
